RIO SKAGIT iFLIGHT HEAD

New for 2013. Powerful, easy casting intermediate head designed to cast sink tips and large flies with the utmost ease.

    RIOs new iFlight is the latest addition in the arsenal of heads for the skagit fly fisher. The short, powerful head has an 8ft long highly visible floating back end that is easy to track during the swing, and can be mended for total fly control. The unique clear camo intermediate front section is a fantastic asset for when extra depth is needed, in strong current and also on windy days, or when a slower swing is needed. 

  • Easy casting, deep loading design for effortlesscasts
  • Powerful front end casts fast sinking tips and large flies
  • Slow sinking intermediate tip for deeper and slower presentations
  • ID printed rear loop for fast head recognition
  • For best performance, RIO recommends attaching the following head sizes to these shooting lines sizes:
  • 275gr to 450gr .024" Powerflex shooting line, or 25lb SlickShooter
  • 450gr to 550gr .030" Powerflex shooting line, or 35lb SlickShooter
  • 550gr to 650gr .035" Powerflex shooting line, or 44lb SlickShooter
  • 650gr and bigger .040" Powerflex shooting line, or 50lb SlickShooter
